Welcome to UC Berkeley!
UC Berkeley peers invite you to the Student Food Collective at 2440 Bancroft Way. The collective offers organic and locally sourced products.
Getting Your Bearings
Get to know your new campus by taking a sustainability walking tour! During GBO, our Carbon Neutrality Initiative Fellows lead these tours and offer workshops. Berkeley campus works to continuously reduce our environmental impact. Students lead the way in making Berkeley Zero Waste by 2020, and in saving energy to become Carbon Neutral by 2025.
What can you do? When you arrive, unpack your reusable water bottle and get familiar with the composting bin in your room - use them often. Enjoy the locally-sourced and sustainable food in the dining halls. Turn off unneeded lights and take shorter showers. Getting around is easy with your transit Class Pass, on campus shuttles or by bike. Still working on your class schedule? Look through our list of sustainability related courses. Or volunteer to improve the habitat around Strawberry Creek.
We want to make it easy for you to join us and engage with our community of sustainability.
The Student Environmental Resource Center is a great starting point for resources and for connecting with existing student groups.
Promote sustainability in the residence halls! You’ll find peer-to-peer education opportunities from the Housing and Dining Sustainability Advocates.
